The Golden Age of Berlin Comes to Life in the Classic, Avant-Garde Film, Berlin: Symphony of a Metropolis (1927)

The rediscovery of Berlin began thirty years ago this November, with the demolition of the wall that had long divided the city's western and eastern halves. Specifically, the Berlin Wall had stood since 1961, meaning the younger generation of West and East Berliners had no memory of their city's being whole. In another sense, the same could be said of their parents' generation, who saw nearly a third of Berlin destroyed in the Second World War. Only the most venerable Berliners would hav...

Whicker: Tiz the Law keeps giving orders, runs away with Travers Stakes

Uncle Chuck, the latest to emerge from Bob Baffert’s speed factory, put together a solid mile at the Travers Stakes on Saturday. However, the race was scheduled for a mile and a quarter. By the time it dawned on Uncle Chuck, Tiz the Law demonstrated why it’s foolish to put a quarter, or a dime, on anybody else’s chances to win the Kentucky Derby. As Luis Saez desperately whipped Uncle Chuck like Keith Moon whacking the drums on “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” Manny Franco looked so comfortable that yo...

Russia Looks to Africa to Extend Its Military Might

MOSCOW—From Russia’s cyber-meddling in the U.S. presidential elections to its alleged hacking of coronavirus research, it’s clear the Kremlin is keen to undermine the democratic West. And it’s now looking to a new front to extend its hard and soft power and prop up fellow authoritarian regimes: the continent of Africa.Last week, the German newspaper Bild raised alarms about Russia’s growing influence in Africa, citing a classified German Foreign Ministry report that Russia has concluded agreemen...

The Portland Trailblazers Is the Scariest Team in the NBA Bubble

The Portland Trailblazers entered the NBA bubble with a lot of uncertainty. How will Jusef Nurkic play after coming back from a horrific injury? Will the smaller Carmelo Anthony be as effective scorer for them? Could they make a run at Memphis for that 8th seed in the West? They have responded by going 3-1 with wins over Memphis, Denver and the Houston Rockets. The only loss they’ve suffered is from Boston. In that game, they trailed by as much as 20-something points in the first half. In the ...

According to the latest Paychex | IHS Market Small Business Employment Watch report, small business job gains in July were moderate.

Kanye West Signals His 2020 Bid Is Really About Peeling Votes From Biden

On Thursday, rap artist Kanye West hinted at the true motive driving his futile bid for the presidency: sabotaging President Donald Trump’s Democratic rival, Joe Biden. West, an outspoken Trump supporter, told Forbes editor Randall Lane he was “walking…to win” when asked if him running for president was an effort to peel votes from Biden. “I’m not going to argue with you,” the rapper said when Lane noted that his bid could only be a spoiler campaign given that too many state ballots won’t be ...

Is Kanye West colluding with the Trump campaign?

According to CNN, one such operative with ties to the Trump campaign, Lane Ruhland, has filed paperwork to get West on the ballot in Wisconsin.... West cannot win the election.

Podcast #633: The World and Vision of Lakota Medicine Man Black Elk

When he was nine years old in 1872, Black Elk, a member of the Lakota tribe, had a near-death vision in which he was called to save not only his people but all of humanity. For the rest of his life, Black Elk’s vision haunted and inspired him as he took part in many of the seminal confrontations between the Lakota and the U.S. government, including those at Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee.  My guest today is the author of a biography of this native holy man. His name is Joe Jackson and his bo...

Istanbul Captured in Beautiful Color Images from 1890: The Hagia Sophia, Topkaki Palace’s Imperial Gate & More

Even those who know nothing else about Istanbul know that it used to be called Constantinople. The official renaming happened in 1930, meaning that the photographs you see here, all of which date from around 1890, were taken, strictly speaking, not in Istanbul but Constantinople. But under any name, and despite all the other changes that have occurred over the past 130 years, the Turkish metropolis on the Bosphorus remains recognizable as the gateway between East and West it has been throughou...

Lakers blend in Dion Waiters as Rajon Rondo’s rehab progresses

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Just 62 minutes into his Lakers tenure, Dion Waiters has already scored 30 points. That part of the game has always come naturally to Waiters, a career double-digit scorer who has sometimes been on the outs with his teams, but he has always possessed an offensive toolbox. While his 3-point jumper hasn’t been quite as hot (he’s just 3 for 14), Waiters has never been one to lack confidence in his shot. And down two guards, the Lakers need a player like him in the rotation....

With Loan Money Gone, Restaurants Are At Mercy Of Virus

NEW YORK (AP) — The check has arrived and beleaguered restaurant owners across America are looking down on their empty wallets. Government coronavirus loans in the spring helped eating establishments rehire laid-off employees and ride out the pandemic’s initial surge and wave of shutdown orders. But that Paycheck Protection Program money has now been spent at many restaurants, leaving them in the same precarious position they were in during outbreak’s early days: Thousands of restaurants are bei...
